Sail

There are many ways to enjoy an adventure aboard the Amelie Rose; join us for a Traditional Taster Weekend, set sail on a longer Adventure Cruise, be part of the action at a Festival or Special Event or polish your sailing skills on an RYA Course or Milebuilder Voyage

Learn

From belaying pins to topmasts, bowsprits to gun-tackles; traditional boats are awash with terms unfamiliar to the modern sailor.

Learn gaff rig sailing skills on any of our adventures, or join us for an RYA Course (in association with our RYA Training Centre Partner BOSS) to experience the world’s best known sailing syllabus on the prettiest school boat in the Solent

Enjoy

No sailing experience is required and you can come on your own or share the adventure with friends, We have trips ranging in length from two days to a fortnight and you can even book the whole boat for a very special custom celebration.

Topsail Adventures - Home of Pilot Cutter Amelie Rose

Since 2009 we’ve been sailing around the English Channel from the Solent to the Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands and Brittany introducing guest crews and RYA trainees to our wonderful world…

29th November 2019

We are very excited to announce that as of 1330 on Friday 29 November 2019, Amelie Rose’s 2020 schedule is live on her website at www.topsail-adventures.co.uk. It’s packed with great adventures from the Solent to the Isles of Scilly and across the English Channel to the amazing International Maritime Festival at Brest in Northern Brittany. We’re really looking forward to a new decade of adventures and really hope that you will join us aboard.

29th November 2019

Part-time First Mate (and full-time woman) Rebecca Sykes takes aim at the stereotypes about Traditional Boat sailing and shares her thoughts on what it’s like as a female to join the crew of the Amelie Rose.

28th November 2019

We've been flicking through our pictures of Amelie Rose's 2019 season whilst thinking about the year ahead, and thought that you might all appreciate a look at our favourites. It certainly was a hell of a year - tons of fabulous blue sky/blue sea sailing but also some blisteringly fast passages. Anyway, enough waffle - enjoy the pictures!

22nd November 2019

Twenty-nineteen has been a busy year for me aboard the Amelie Rose. Our 11th season saw us sail over 1,800nm, from Scilly to Brittany, the Channel Islands to the Solent. Not counting the hundreds of kids who sailed aboard with the Set Sail Trust, over 90 guest crews have joined us on our adventures this year. We've met old friends and made new ones everywhere we've been and through it all Amelie Rose has been amazing. She is a true pleasure to sail, always looking out for her crew, and always giving her best. As we close on the end of this eventful year, I thought that I’d share some of my most treasured memories.

20th November 2019

As well as marking the start of a new decade 2020 will herald the beginning of our 12th season aboard the Amelie Rose and we’ve packed the schedule full of our favourite adventures to celebrate. Here’s a preview of what could be coming your way…

20th November 2019

A new year of fabulous adventures beckons - and we can't wait! Our 2020 schedule launches exclusively to our email newsletter subscribers on Friday 22nd November and then goes live on our website on Friday 29th!

30th July 2019

Some of you who followed last years Clean Seas Odyssey may be wondering whether it was a one hit wonder or whether we intend to continue our fight for the health of our seas. The truth is that we remain utterly committed to doing our part to protect our planet and its oceans and with this in mind we are pleased today to announce Clean Seas Odyssey Week at Portland Marina.

7th March 2019

This is another staple on board the Amelie Rose – rarely a trip goes by when some version of this doesn’t pop out of the hatch for one lunchtime or another. Although it’s basically just glorified cheese on toast it’s fast, it’s tasty and there is rarely any left.

7th March 2019

Ok, so everyone has a chilli recipe, right? In that case why bother to include this in my Galley Squawks at all you may wonder. The thing is, it’s such a staple when we’re aboard, and we get so many admiring comments (and so few leftovers) that I thought we really should.
